ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) - The Oakland Raiders have released offensive linemen Jonathan Compass and Marcus Johnson, receivers Shawn Bayes and Will Franklin, and defensive tackle Joe Cohen.

The moves on Monday leave the Raiders with 75 players on the roster a day before the deadline to reach that number. Oakland will have to reduce the roster to 53 by Saturday.

Also Monday, center John Wade returned to practice for the first time since leaving the exhibition opener on Aug. 13 with a stinger.
